Loss is one of the hardest life truths we face. Losing a loved one or something else precious can feel like life stops for you but continues for friends or family who either are handling their own unique grief or soon stop checking in. Grief can be immediate impact or re-/arise years after, especially if you weren’t able to mourn at the start. Grief can be anticipating a death, receiving a diagnosis, and be complicated. Having a sacred space for your grief is healing.
